Essentials in Miami
South Beach: Miami is full of beaches but if you spend your time at just one area, make it South Beach, SoBe for short. The lifeguard stands at Lummus Park are anything but standard-issue, walk along the beach and pick out your favorite.
The Everglades: At first glance this place really does look like a swamp full of crocodiles. But this is one of the most unique ecosystems in North America! To get things straight, it’s a wet prairie with tree islands, that flows very slowly out to the ocean. The best time to visit is from December to April, when the crocs are out in abundance.
Fort Lauderdale: For the chic young crowd, there’s only one reason to book flights to Miami: to party in Fort Lauderdale. Think martinis and yachts, jazz concerts and boutique shopping along Las Olas Boulevard. This is the place to spend an evening out in Miami.
